This is my playground for poetry written for children with ideas and inspiration for writing your own poems. Come on in. Sit for a spell, have a cup of words to swirl around and make your own cup of poetry. I'm so glad you are here. I hope you'll find the Kingdom of Poetry a fun place to be.

I'm so hungry
I could eat a bear.
My teddy says,
"Don't go there!"

I'm so hungry
I could eat a horse.
"Don't eat me!"
says my horse, of course.

I'm so hungry
I could eat a cow.
"If I'm eaten,
there's no milk, now."

I'm no longer hungry
Don't want to be fed.
I think I'll return
to my bed instead.

     This is not the first poem I've written about being hungry.  What kind of poem could you write to answer the question: How hungry are you?  What would you eat?  Have fun writing a food poem today.


  1. Joy,
    What interesting table conversation this would make. I can see it illustrated now.

  2. Hey, Linda,
    I'm thinking about a beginning reader. I could include lots more animals. And have the animals getting ready for breakfast. It could be fun.

  3. This is very cute. Yes, it's a great beginning for a beginning reader. Good luck.
